On Patch Tuesday this month, Microsoft will be delivering 13 bulletins that address 22 different vulnerabilities in Windows, Office, Internet Explorer, .NET, and Visual Studio. That’s as many vulnerabilities addressed as last month, but many more patches.
Two bulletins, for Windows and Internet Explorer, have a critical rating. Nine, spanning Windows, Office, .NET, and Visual Studio, have an important rating. The final two have a rating of just moderate—something of a rarity. The critical bulletins are both remote code execution problems, with the remainder a mix of remote code execution, elevation of privilege, denial of service, and information disclosure. Reboots will be required for the critical updates, and most of the others too.
